I agree with Nigel; smaller prop and lower pitch - will make the battery last longer too. Even if you do go bigger, it's a good idea to start smaller and build up after each test flight.

I used to always put the biggest prop I could on my electrics when I first started but after buying a 'Watts Up' meter and doing a few tests I found I was over-propping them needlessly. They all fly just as well with an inch less in diameter and less pitch, plus the aforementioned increase in duration.

If in doubt, buy a few props and experiment, all part of the fun isn't it!

Regards
Harry
